for bubble. foreign policy magazine quickly pointing out that the former president does not have irish grandparents. this heritage thing is getting complicated for the democrats. so he can't run there. french law was amended in 2006 to remove the section of what the clinton referred to, so he is all out of eligibility. however, if you would like to spend a little bit of time, the v-6 months or whenever it might be, it's something to think about. the nfl regular referees are back. the nfl and the referees union reaching a tentative agreement last night in a 3-month lockout. earlier today nfl commissioner roger dow apologized to fans for using those replacements. >> we are sorry to have to bring our fans through that, sorry to bring the general public that. that is unfortunately part of labor-management disputes. but they are also necessary to get those disputes resolved. lou: you know, maybe he even believes that. i don't know. it was a really bad decision on his part in the nfl. frankly, that all got shoved right up his nose. the deal is done and that's a wrap. move on. even the white
in afghanistan and we have 68,000 troops there now. this is an entire foreign policy discussion we continue to have to define our enemies and to really know who we're facing and how to win. why are we still having this discussion? why is this so difficult to do? >> the biggest nightmare, the taliban is for us to not leave the region, to have a partnership with the afghan people past 2014. my hope we would withdraw most of our troops in 2014. leave 15 or 20,000 behind to aid the afghan army to make sure there is never a chance for the taliban to take the country over militarily. they know that. what are they trying to do? they're trying to break the partnership apart, the taliban. jenna: would you take the troops and put them in libya and go after the people that murdered our ambassador? >> i would work with the libyan government and the libyan people to have a joint operation to go after the terrorists. in afghanistan i would tell the taliban, you will never come back in power through the use of force. we'll never let this place become a safe haven for terrorists. we'll withdraw a troops su
of his foreign policy. we can't have the truth about his overall failure as a president at anything. >> greta: and the hits keep coming and fast. former new hampshire governor john sununu ratchets it up, saying president obama is absolutely lazy and detached from his job. governor sununu joins us. nice to see you, governor. >> good to be here. how are you? >> greta: very well. very tough words. can you defend them? because that's very biting words. >> sure. look, one of the key responsibilities of a president is to keep up with the intelligence data that's coming in, what's going on around the world. this president has skipped about 60% of his personal contact presidential daily briefings, the pdb. that document he skims on his ipad is a summary. the briefings that come over, the experts that come over to follow in detail what's coming up on, this president thinks he's so smart he doesn't have to go through that. he thinks he doesn't need to put the extra work in for going through that process. that's why i say he's lazy and detached and unfortunately ambassador stevens suffered the
. governor romney continued on the attack on foreign policy today. >>carl: he was at the university which was a strong back drop for it and had a conversation with israeli prime minister binyamin netanyahu seconds after the president. as he addressed that group, governor romney went after the president for his dismissive assertion that so much of what has happened in the middle east and north africa amounts to in the president's words "bumps on the road." watch. >> i don't consider 20,000 or 30,000 people dying if syria a bump in the road or a muslim brotherhood president in egypt a bump in the road. i don't car the killing our diplomats in libya a bump in the road and i don't consider iran becoming nuclear a bump in the road. we someone to recognize the seriousness of what is ahead and who is willing to lead. >>carl: he is using foreign policy in international affairs as a two pronged criticism, including lack of leadership, and, also, suggesting the fiscal cliff and deep cuts that will happen or be averted by the president and congress before the first of the year will amount they furth
megyn kelly. this latest twist in the foreign policy scandal came hours after fox news yesterday confirmed that u.s. intelligence knew on day one that terror was behind attacks attacks in libya that took the lives of our ambassador in libya. that contradicts information put out by the white house in the days after the attack, blamed for a protest that got out of hand. now, several democrats have joined republicans on the senate foreign relations committee in a joint letter to the state department. demanding to know what kind of intelligence the state department had prior to the attack. and whether security was adequately trained to protect our mission. our chief intelligence correspondent is live in washington with more. >> thank you, megyn. they sent those bipartisan letter to the deputy secretary of state, requesting about the security posture senator grassley. what they were doing to mitigate the threat and how much the u.s. and libyan governments knew about the growing threat from al qaeda and militias in eastern libya. >> all members of the formulation relations committee, b
. can any of these foreign policy questions and whether or not the administration bungled the response after the attacks, the horrible tragedy in benghazi, or the israeli relationship and whether mitt romney is correct that the administration has thrown israel under the bus, can any of these foreign policy questions come into it or does this have to be under the format strictly domestic policy. >> i think only if chip herrer asks the question. if romney were to launch an attack on libya or launch an attack on the israeli question, he would look like he was trying to score political points in a debate where he's supposed to be talking about the economy. one of the rules i have for the debates you don't fight with the moderator and you don't invade the other person's space. >> a violation of the newt gingrich rule which was to completely go after maria bartiromo and john harwood at the cnbc debate in michigan and make -- make them the target. >> he was looking for right wing base voters who hate the media. i don't think that's the situation here. when you fight with the moderator and som
in charlotte spiking the football on osama and the only foreign policy achievement of four years they repeated it over and over. and great triumph and then al-qaida sacks the embassy and kills the ambassador and so the administration deceived america thinking it was a film. and the media would let it slide and now it is obvious and no one will care. >> gretchen: that is the most important thing it is all about perception with the american public. 39 days until the election. foreign policy came from the back burner to the front. the message that the administration wanted to cope out there was only about osama bin laden, that is a great message . president obama successfully got rid of that guy . but this message said al-qaida is alive that is bad news. >> brian: the cia director briefed law makers and said it was a spontanous attack. but our sources said ca anyhow what was going on and had the name. a senator out of tennessee this is turning into something like benghazigate. and john kerry has come forward and circulating a letter bipartisan asking the secretary of state to come forward and exp
is the media on this? governor mitt romney spoke to a foreign-policy topic forum at valley college in california. it shows president obama leading in pennsylvania by more than a point. but that did not stop the governor from blasting the president for calling deadly turmoil around the muslim world, a bump in the road. >> i don't consider 20 or 30,000 people dying just a bump in the road. or a muslim brotherhood president in egypt a bump in the road. i don't consider the killing of our diplomats in libya as a bump in the road, and i sure as heck don't consider iran becoming nuclear, a bump in the road. we need someone who recognizes what is ahead and what is willing to be done as a leader. megyn: president obama continues his campaign again today. megyn: off to the critical swing state of virginia. new polls show the race tightening their grip president obama leading governor romney by two points. 46% to 44%. that is within the margin of error. here is the policy average of all polls in virginia. the president of about four points. now some politics watchers are suggesting all of th
would be about the economy. lately foreign policy has also been a priority. now president obama has talked on the phone today with israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu and we understand that mitt romney just spoke with him by phone moments ago. we got -- first up, of course, jen socky, a traveling press secretary for the obama campaign. jen, first of all, there was some criticism -- >> hi. >> hi. good to see you. >> there was criticism, back and forth, about -- one of our laiss said it was a telanovella, this drama between the president and netanyahu over whether or not they should see each other face-to-face, around the united nations meetings, these kinds of things. they have now spoken. does this put this to rest? >> well, suzanne, they also spoke for about an hour about two weeks ago, and they are in consistent contact, as are members of the president's national security team, and seetary hillary clinton. you know, the president is focused on governing, restoring our place in the world, focussing on what needs to be done in these areas, and mitt romney seems to be focused o
a cartoon. mitt romney -- the u.s. should immediately bomb england. foreign policy with mitt romney. this is a cartoon that i had in my comic strip. we each have these -- i do not know. i am not sure if best and -- i promised i would not miss up your comic strip. we each do a comic strip so we are lucky as far as editorial cartoons. good to use the other side of our brands to read comics. i have been accused of making my way to political. this is my 9/11 tribute. it actually was originally a long strip. you have to turn your head to see it. i made it into an editorial cartoon. here is mitt romney having a candlelight vigil for osama bin laden. this is a cartoon i did the year after 9/11 about maybe some of the causes behind 9/11. this is also the year after 911. i call it the twin tepees. it marks the genocide that has happened. it was a reaction to some of the more excess of chest beating about 9/11. we never remember the other tragedies that have been on american soil. i do not really have anything to say about this. [laughter] i think the ladies and know what i am talking about.
on when dealing with al qaeda specifically and terrorism and foreign policy and this was frankly a disaster for the united states and a terrible tragedy so they see this as a way to criticize some of the president's policies in the region. >> brown: steven lee myers, daniel byman, thank you so much. >> thank you. >> woodruff: now to our american graduate series on the high school dropout problem. tonight, we explore the pressures on a public school system in a city that's unexpectedly benefiting from economic good times. ray suarez has our story from north dakota. >> reporter: there is no better economic view in the u.s. than the one seen from above williston, north dakota. a rapidly expanding oil boom has taken root below, bringing with it widespread prosperity and an unemployment rate that sits at just 1%. this city's fortunes are in stark contrast to most of the nation. real estate is profitable. blue collar jobs are abundant. and much of the globe, including asia, the middle east and europe, is investing in the local economy. but as opportunities and new residents pour in, it
people that we should hear from on foreign policy given all of the missteps that mitt romney has made. but look, wolf, beyond the political nature of this whole inquiry, we need to look at the fact that al qaeda leaders posted a video a day before the attack on september 10th which mr. alvarez wa ri wanted to avhe of one of his deputin libya. he called upon libyans to, you know, try torounrest. so look i thin one of the things we should do right now is to let congress -- members of congress investigate this. they will investigate this. senator kerry along with senator has sent a letter to the administration answering very important questions that i think the american people will want to know. on the short end of this, i doubt very seriously that the administration will try to mislead the american people at a time when as we all know that this administration has been hunting down al qaeda leaders all throughout the middle east and northern africa as well. >> i don't know if you heard, david, mike huckaby suggests this could be worse than watergate. watergate he points out no one was ki
of foreign policy message and leadership, such a misstatement of facts at the time and for her to go on all of those shows and in effect the spokesman for the world and be misinforming the american people and our allies and countries around the world, to me somebody has to pay the price for this. we have too much things go wrong and everyone forgets about it the next day. i think we have to send a clear message. on such an issue where an american ambassador was killed where by all the evidence at the time the presumption had to be it was terrorism. i can see why if they wanted to say -- whether it was intentionally or unintentionally and to show the significance of that, i believe she should resign, yes. >> because there is a statement that the spokesperson, the director of public affairs for the office of the director of national intelligence put out today they are saying it was obviously a terrorist -- an action, a deliberate and organized terrorist assault carried out by extremists affiliated or sympathetic with al qaeda, that's today's statement. but they also said this, and let me read
there as well. the united states foreign policy towards the persian gulf has for decades focused squarely on ensuring the free flow of oil from the gulf to the aborted and the soviet union but in recent decades. our concern to the region has embroiled us in the two wars in the past 20 years and led to a significant military commitment of military assets in the region and the question arises almost immediately why does the united states expand such efforts and so much of its assets. we are in fact a number three we'll producer in the world and when we import less than 20% of our crude imports from the gulf. so these issues we are going to explores the global energy market, the changing place changing is the persian gulf oil and gas still important and likely to be in the future where the shiastan index in the immediate region when the impact on the region's ability to produce. we have the very distinguished panelists. on my right, dr. jean-francois seznec currently adjunct professor at georgetown university. and for the previous ten years, dr. seznec was visiting professor of georgetown un
, and how romney's policies will build out the 1%, but it makes him focus or let's the focus be on what romney has actually done throughout his lifetime. on his taxes we see that he has invested in foreign countries with secret corporations in bermuda, banks in the cayman islands, switzerland -- >> a lot of americans invest in foreign countries. doesn't mean they're less patriotic. >> but it means that mitt romney's policies are not focused on building out the middle class in america. that's where i think it comes down. the contrast between somebody that really understands what it is and what policies need to be put in place for the strength of this country to come from the strength in the middle class and he can also put in there the auto bailout, carol. we all know that mitt romney -- >> i don't know. >> exactly. >> patriotism is personal for me. i have my own personal beliefs, what you think is patriotic but patriotism to me doesn't have anything to do with the economy. >> let me tell you, carol, i think before the end of the campaign is over what we're going to see is a blow up doll
